Egg Biryani is a protein-loaded version of our all time favourite Biryani. Because of the excessive amount of work last week, the weekend meals were simple everyday fare and the kitchen was pretty boring with nothing exciting happening.
With some breathing space since yesterday, I am on a cooking and baking spree and churning out dish after dish to feed the blog for a few days as I get busy with work tomorrow onwards. While I was busy cooking and shooting dishes, I came across this Egg Biryani recipe which was lying in my folder since long and I almost forgot about posting it.
This delicious Egg Dum Biryani is a treasured recipe of mine. I have made it n number of times and it always turns out perfect. Don’t get intimidated by the recipe and ingredients. Though it is a little extra amount of work to make it, it’s worth all the effort.
In case you like to eat more veggies with flavourful Basmati Rice then you could even try making Vegetable Dum Biryani which tastes equally scrumptious, ladies! But, for today, you should definitely note down this recipe of Egg Biryani and prepare the same at your earliest, there you go!
Always wipe the eggs before frying them. It will prevent them from spluttering.
